The City has contracted with Recycle Boise to help citizens dispose of their electronic waste free of charge. What is electronic waste? It is electronic equipment that is obsolete or no longer working. This type of equipment contains pollution and toxic materials that can leach out into the environment.
Items Accepted and NOT Accepted
The following items are accepted through the City's e-waste program:
Computer monitors (residential customers only)
Computers, keyboards and mice
Printers, scanners and fax machines
Recycle Boise does not accept televisions, photocopiers, or black-and-white monitors at this time.
Participants can be assured that all hard drives will be wiped clean of any data. 100% of all hard drives received by Recycle Boise are either run through a data destroying process or physically destroyed. This ensures all customers that their personal and confidential material is safe when left with Recycle Boise.
